Plesk Prelink Cron error

I found that we had been getting this error every morning since updating the Plesk server to 9.3 :

Cron <root@plesk3> run-parts /etc/cron.daily
/etc/cron.daily/prelink: line 45: /var/log/prelink/prelink.log: No such file or directory
/etc/cron.daily/prelink: line 46: /var/log/prelink/prelink.log: No such file or directory
/etc/cron.daily/prelink: line 47: /var/log/prelink/prelink.log: No such file or directory

The odd thing is that the /var/log/prelink/ folder does not seem to have been created during the upgrade process, and the cron cannot create the folder automatically. Simple fix – SSH into your server and create the folder manually

mkdir /var/log/prelink

Let me know in the comments if this has helped you out…


Quick command : Top 25 Mailboxes by Size

Description : This command will email (or display in terminal) the top 25 mailboxes, ordered by size. Strangely – Plesk doesn’t seem to have any kind of Mailbox Size report, and will only show you the domain mailboxes combined.

Simply SSH into your Plesk server and run the following :

cd /var/qmail/mailnames
du -hs --block-size=1024K */* | sort -nr | head -25 | mail -s 'Top 25 Mailboxes by Size' [email protected]

And if you wish to display on screen :

cd /var/qmail/mailnames
du -hs --block-size=1024K */* | sort -nr | head -25

The first script could be set up as a handy Cron job to send you a weekly / monthly report.
